Nuggets escape with 107-100 win over Warriors


PhilBoxing.com




SAN JOSE -- The momentum shift -- at least for one night -- when the Denver Nuggets made a statement with a 107-101 win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 5 in their best of 7 match up on Tuesday night at Pepsi Arena in Denver, forcing a 6 game in the series.

Andre Iguodala scored game high of 25 points and 12 rebounds. He held Curry to just 15 points on 7 of 19 shooting and 1 of 7 from beyond the arc. Ty Lawson recorded a double-double with 19 points and 10 assists while Kenneth Faried finished with 13 points and 10 boards.

"We're up 20 points. We have to put our foot on their neck," Lawson said. "We can't let it get down to nine because with them a nine-point lead is like a three-point lead. They can just come down and hit threes."

"I think I've taken the hardest hit in the series, Game 1 or 2, when Bogut leaned in to me on a screen," Iguodala said. "And I didn't remember what happened the rest of the game. I think they kind of brought the physicality to the series. And we stopped being the receivers and we're starting to hit back a little bit. But as far as anybody trying to cheap shot, I don't condone that myself. It's not my game."

Harrison Barnes led the Warriors with 23 points and 9 rebounds. Jarrett Jack contributed 20 points, 5 assists and 6 rebounds while Thompson added 19 points.

Curry has just 8 points on 4-of-14 shooting and 0-for-5 from three. "There were a couple, man. I'm going through the paint minding my own business and they come out of nowhere, trying to throw elbows," Curry said after the game, "I understand if I'm going to the basket you want to give a hard foul, it's the playoffs ... But there's a time and place."

Warriors Coach Mark Jackson said "The screen on Curry, by the foul line, it was a shot at his ankle, clearly. That can't be debated. I've got inside information that some people don't like that brand of basketball and they clearly didn't co-sign it. They wanted to let me know they have no part in what was taking place. Let the best team win. Let everybody, with the exception of going down with a freak injury, let everybody leave out of here healthy. That's not good basketball."

"It's the series, it's physical, whether they're taking cheap shots or not we need to match that physicality," Andrew Bogut said. "We don't want to come back here. If we come back here the momentum's going to shift and we're in trouble."

The Nuggets live to fight another day but will return to Warriors ground Thursday night for Game 6. GSW lead the series three games to two. (DM)
